When humans get sick or hurt, they visit the doctor, describe their symptoms and receive the appropriate care. With pets, it’s not always this straightforward. Because animals can’t speak, they aren’t always able to let us know when something is bothering them.
What’s more, many animals are able to mask the signs of illness, allowing it to develop and worsen undetected.
Veterinary diagnostics enable us to identify and address health problems in a timely manner. Fast and accurate diagnosis of illness and injury can vastly improve the chances of a positive outcome.
The on-site diagnostic laboratory at Flamingo Pet Clinic makes it fast and efficient to run a wide variety of tests. In many cases, we can have results in just minutes. This means we can have a treatment plan in place before you and your best friend even leave the exam room.
When a physical exam and lab work aren’t enough to achieve a diagnosis, we turn to advanced imaging technology, including x-rays and ultrasound. These innovative tools allow us to examine the bones and internal organs, identifying injuries, diagnosing illness and determining its severity.
Digital images can be evaluated by our doctors in real-time or shared electronically with specialists if necessary.
